Using Butler to schedule list watching?

We have editors who are scheduled to be on duty or off duty on specific days and use the watch list feature to get notifications when something is moved in to the column. Is there a way using Butler or another system to automatically have a user enable and disable "watch" on a list column by date? So for example:

User X is on duty on mondays. System automatically toggles on "Watch" for that user for a column on Mondays, then untoggles watch at end of day.

Hey @Adam Mordecai 

Great question! Right now, I'm afraid that Butler doesn't have an action that will watch a specific list for a member on a scheduled basis, but I will let our team know you'd like to see that functionality in the future.

For now, I'd instead recommend creating a scheduled rule that creates a new card when those rotations shift and then notifies the appropriate user. Perhaps something like this would work:

Let me know if that helps!
